Missing Pattern Pieces in PDF File

The patterns are made as a PDF so they can be opened across the different devices.

In order for all the pattern pieces to be visible - you do need to open these files using the newest version of Adobe Reader ( you can find instructions to install FREE Adobe Reader here).

+ First, download the PDF file to your computer/device ( instructions to download a PDF file can be found here).

+ Launch Adobe Acrobat Reader.

+ Open the PDF File from Adobe Acrobat Reader ( instructions how to open a PDF file can be found here).

Once you open your PDF pattern file in the Adobe Reader Software:

1) The PDF file is made up of the main file that includes general pattern information and attachment PDF which includes the printable pattern pieces. When you open the file - you first have the main file that has general pattern information and will look like this ( I am using the Ruby dress as an example):

2) To access the attachment which is the pattern pieces. In the Adobe Reader menu click - View - Show/Hide - Navigation Panes - Attachments (this is a picture of the steps):

3) Adobe Reader will pop open a side panel exposing the attached files and your screen will look like this:

4) Double click on the attached file that is highlighted in blue on the left-hand side in the picture above and Adobe will open the attached file which are your pattern pieces. Your screen will look like this:

5) You are now ready to print the pattern on regular A4 printer paper. Please refer here for printing directions.

    I've opened the files with Adobe, the only pages available that come up are the pattern pieces. There are no main tutorial instructions available, I'm having this problem with two separate patterns and have followed the steps above with no luck.

    Good morning Kelsie - some of the patterns are made in conjunction with our tutorials on the thread - the pattern files that open directly to the pattern pieces - will have the step by step sewing instructions on our blog and you can just enter the name of the pattern in the search on the blog and it will open the tutorial with pictures of the steps. https://blog.fabrics-store.com/ - hope this helps :)

    Thank you Oksana! I found that there is a link at the top of each pattern that directs you to the tutorial page, very helpful. Thank you! Just made the button down pleated dress and I'm so happy with it. The tutorial was very clear and easy to follow excited to try so many more! Would love to see some jumpsuit/ romper tutorials some day!

    Hi Kelsie! I am glad you found the tutorial and like the dress :) We don't have a jumpsuit tutorial ( you can always leave a comment on the blog and Masha will see the request) or you can use this free pattern and it will have instructions in the PDF ( just no step by step photos like in the tutorial) https://fabrics-store.com/sewing-patterns/cloe-jumpsuit/

    Happy sewing :)
